5/25/2017 – Reached $950,000 settlement agreement in race discrimination class action against Sephora

Mr. Wigdor represented the Plaintiffs in a federal racial profiling class action lawsuit against beauty mogul Sephora. The Complaint alleged that the company discriminated against individuals perceived to be of Chinese/Asian descent, based on their surnames and/or domain addresses, and proceeded to block and/or deactivate their accounts during an online reward member sale. As alleged, Sephora engaged in this discriminatory conduct based on the stereotype that Chinese/Asian customers make bulk purchases for resale.
